According to multiple reports, the Jets will officially sign Buster Skrine. Hopefully it's for the #3 position and no higher.
Former Browns CB Buster Skrine expected to sign with Jets, per me and @caplannfl.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 10, 2015
Skrine is hardly a marquee player but he did have 4 interceptions and 55 tackles last year. Saying that, he has ben rated as one of the worst cornerbacks in the league over the last few years.
Personally I'm not a fan of Skrine and actually think he's a pretty poor player. When I say I would have preferred us to sign Kyle Wilson instead of Skrine, you'll know what I mean.
He did have 11 penalties last year which is significantly higher than you'd want, that's a lot of free yads. He was part of a very good secondary and had a career year with 18 pass defenses but yet he was rated as one of the worst corners in the league by PFF.
Skrine deal is 4 years for $25 million with $13 million guaranteed, per source #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 10, 2015
